  • Healthy Eating Activity and Lifestyle (HEAL)

    HEAL is a lifestyle modification program that enables participants to develop lifelong healthy eating and physical activity behaviours. In it’s original form HEAL™ consists of eight weekly group education and group exercise sessions as well as individual consultations pre- and post-program and five and 12 month follow-up health consultations. Each week participants undertake one hour of supervised group-based low to moderate intensity physical activity followed by a one hour group-based healthy lifestyle education class. HEAL™ is a nationally accredited evidence based program run by Northern Australia Primary Health Limited. HEAL can be delivered in a number of formats to suit your organisation’s requirements and other services such as mental health incorporated into a package for your needs.


    Who can participate in HEAL™?

    The program assists people who are overweight, or obese, with existing chronic disease or at risk of developing chronic disease to improve their health and well-being by providing lifestyle education with a focus on improving nutrition and physical activity and promoting self-management. Persons at risk of developing, or with existing diabetes, heart diseases or other conditions are examples of some of the participants that can attend HEAL™.


    How can I refer patients or become a participant of HEAL™?


    Eligible patients include those:

    • at high risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes
    • with 2 or more cardiovascular disease risk factors
    • with a BMI greater than 30

    HEAL can be also offered to those without existing risk factors such as general community groups to raise awareness of health promoting practices. NAPHL has successfully run HEAL with employees, teachers, general health workers, disability support workers and Indigenous groups. A free program is available in most rural areas, while in others HEAL is offered for a fee.


    Referring agencies or patients are required to fill in an Outreach Allied Health Service referral form and HEAL screening tool or contact our Exercise Physiologist below to work out a package that suits you.
